Mike, It was a pleasure talking with you at MUM. We have a 105 foot Ladder truck that used to be in service at Springfield IL FD. It has a lifting capacity of 750 LBS. We do not use it for site survey's, we have two bucket vans for that. It is a portable tower, and we utilized it as a tower, last year when we had two towers damaged by tornados.
We had it refurbished by a truck center near her, and it is up to NFPA standards on the ladder operation. There is not a generator yet, as we are looking for a diesel generator. (all of our generators are gas) It has around 35K miles, and it is a 78 model. I will post a pic when I get in the office later today. I have used it's lifting capacity to stack a 120' Rohn 25G tower in two sections. It was really helpful in stacking that tower in an afternoon without a crane expense.
